RE: Infant Rowe
Thank you. I believe this baby was the child of my great grandfather, Charles Lewis Rowe (#66599182), and his second wife, Lucy A. Ellam Rowe.

Infant Rowe
In memorial #30104032, there is the following note: "Infant of C.T." Is C.T. the name of someone?

RE: Eyle Doenges
Either is fine with me - it's another of those where it's different depending which record you look at. She used Weimer on all of her marriage paperwork, but I believe I saw an obit for her under Wimer.

RE: Emma Swisher death date
Thanks. Not sure I sent the 4th as a date. Maybe a slip of the mouse. Wasn't able to access the obit from my available resources.

RE: Margaret Donathan Watson
I am also trying to locate the obituary for Margaret's mother, Hannah Beach Disney, who died in Springfield, Ill. on 15 July 1946. Do you by any chance have access to her obituary as well? I would be very appreciative. It would also be very helpful. Thank you.

RE: Sargeant photo requests
I plan on talking to the keeper of the cemetery to find out what sort of record she has on them and will let you know what I find out. I will also try and get back to where that bridge was and see if I can get a picture when it gets a little bit nicer out. I live just a few miles from there.

RE: Stout Cemetery
Yes, BjJ, I would appreciate the phone number for Stout Cemetery. Sometimes infants were buried with other family members.

Stout Cemetery
Hi BjJ,
I see that you have some memorials at Stout Cemetery and that Stout has been 95% photographed. I'm curious as to whether or not you might have access to records at Stout Cemetery. I'm trying to trace Luther Paul Smith, an infant son of Joseph Luther Smith and his wife Emma. I have found several articles from the Daily Illinois State Journal for May 24, 25, and 26 of 1905 stating that the child was buried at Stout Cemetery. In the articles the father's initials are mixed up as CL and JS Smith, but I think this is the correct family.

RE: Alice Galant
I do not have a complete obituary for her husband, Alexander Galant, only death notice, which mentions his daughter, Mrs. Pauline Ewing, can you send me a copy of his obit. As you probably already know, she had a daughter Stella, who marries Blake Rawles, maybe her middle name is Bacquet, for Stella Bacquet Galant?

I also have her obituary, and I was at first confused by the name Desboney, however, I spoke with Eugene Galant/Gallant's son who didn't recognize the name Desboney, so I did some more checking and came up with Alice Elizabeth Galant's Illinois death record on Ancestry, which indicates her maiden name as Bacquet. I also spoke with Stella Galant Rawles granddaughter, and Eugene's son, both of who verified the maiden name as Bacquet. Eugene's son also sent me a picture of the Galant Family in Pennsylvania, which also indicates Alice (Bacquet).

So yes, I am sure her maiden name was Bacquet, and her death record also indicates her father as Joseph Bacquet.

John and Elizabeth Fay
Thank you for the suggestions. I've updated John Fay's bio. Regarding Elizabeth, I, too, found those articles. They are my 2x great grandparents. I was sickened.
Thank you.

I am so sorry for the inconvenience! I have no idea how I sent IL instead of AR. I had it right in my mind. Thanks for being so kind about it!

Added by Anonymous1 on Jan 19, 2015 3:42 PM

Viola Herrin
You are absolutely right. I, too, have she was born in Black Rock, AR, but it is located in Lawrence Co., AR. For some reason, the Find A Grave system does not have Black Rock as an option, so I couldn't indicate Black Rock. Perhaps Black Rock is a very small community. Thanks for much for checking further!

RE: Note.....
BjJ, I have a question and you seem very knowledgeable about F. A. G.. When someone is born in Ball Township or Cotton Hill, how do you list birth place on F. A. G? I don't think those options are available. What do you do when a place name is from another time and not used today?

Samuel Johnson
thank you so much for the obit for Samuel Johnson. His brother John is my great-great-grandfather.
Are you a relative? I would like to make contact with descendants of Samuel. His father died when he was 1, his mother when he was 12. John's son Isaiah came west to Kansas, and our family has lost contact
again thank you
Barbara Johnston
